“I may have started it, but he has been the engineer

behind it,” Ed Sabol said of his son in a 2008 interview. “He comes up with these great ideas and is a great student of the game.” Of the sports Emmy Awards won by NFL Films, 107, including two this year, Steve Sabol was

feature, on the Miami Dolphinstraining camp.) He interspersed

And he wrote scripts, often rhyming ones.
